Great run by the Wolverines to get there, but Nova was simply too much. The way Nova played tonight I don't think it would have made any difference who they played.

You slap a Duke or a UNC on Villanova and they are being talked about among the all time greats.  This year the best team was also the national championship, and that is always good.  I think you have to go back to 2009 UNC to find a champ even in the discussion with this Villanova team.

I tried to stay up for this game, but didn't make past the 1st half. Looks like I didn't miss anything in the 2nd.

Great season for That Team Up North.
And Congrats to Villinova.

Wow. Villanova is incredible. Michigan was shooting well early but rapid foul trouble sent DR to the bench and seemed to immediately end their flow on D, too, but especially O. And bye went the lead. I'm not sure it would have mattered though when a team is hitting contested 3s like that.

I was off the grid more or less last week, so apologies if some already posted this.

Michael Finke Jr. and TeJon Lucas are joining Mark Smith in transferring from Illinois.

The 2018 class stands as of a few minutes ago:

Ayo Dosunmu, Alan Griffin, Tevian Jones, George Bezhanishvili and Samba Kane

2 open scholarships right now.

Illini that remain:

Trent Frazier, Aaron Jordan, Kipper Nichols, Greg Ebo, DaMonte Williams and Matic Vesel


Yeah, this stuff is now in the 18/19 thread. Some of us were in that thread before others. WE welcomed Michigan last night.

My otherwise busted bracket does have Villanova winning it all.


I had nova winning it all as well... So did others.   However, they did better in the early rounds.   Nothing like finishing slightly above the mean while choosing the winner.

Weird stat about Michigan and Final Fours.  Their first ever (1964) they lost.  Since then, they have made seven trips.  They are 7-0 in Final 4 games, and 1-6 in National Championship games.

So for picking purposes, if you put Michigan in your Final 4, you'd better pick them to win that game, and no more.  Picking a FF loss, or an NC win is historically a bad bet.
